Running Made Me a Better Mom

Tonight...I ran! If you know me, I am not a runner...at all! In fact, I despise it! My husband is the runner in the family. Even when he's deployed on his submarine, he's always trying to fit in time for a treadmill run. It's pretty crazy how they cram a treadmill onto a submarine (just… Continue reading Running Made Me a Better Mom

Mom Life: A Trip to the Children’s Museum

Ladybug and I are headed to the kids Museum again this morning! I wanted to share this with you from our last trip 🙂

Adventures of a Busy Mom

Nothing quite says “mom life” like a trip to the Children’s Museum! As I walked around and saw that I was in a sea of under 7 year olds, I realized I had chosen the perfect shirt for the day!

Ever since my son was little, we have always really enjoyed going to Children’s Museums. Some parents cringe at the thought but I love it. I save that cringing feeling for Chuck E.

Road alerts were flashing the warning. Sirens were blaring. The news announced the bomb threat. Twitter, Facebook...you… Continue reading A 2nd Chance at Life: Hawaii’s Ballistic Missile Warning

From Hawaii to Nebraska: Adjusting to the Cold Weather

Well, I must confess, I came to Nebraska for Christmas with a hidden agenda: to see how I respond to cold weather again. My husband retires from the Navy in a few years and we are talking more seriously about where we want to settle down for our "forever home." We both LOVE the idea of… Continue reading From Hawaii to Nebraska: Adjusting to the Cold Weather

Simply Having A Wonderful Christmas Time: Christmas Lights, S’Mores, Scavenger Hunt & Live Nativity

Family Friday One of my favorite things to do this time of year is drive around and look at Christmas lights. Ever since I was a little girl, I have been fascinated by them!

What Being a Military Family Taught Me About the Holidays

Family Friday My husband missed our sons Birthday. He didn't get to see the kids in their Halloween costumes this year. He missed Thanksgiving. He will miss seeing the sparkle of our lights and their excited glowing faces on Christmas morning. We will ring in the New Year without him. The list goes on and on....special… Continue reading What Being a Military Family Taught Me About the Holidays
